Martin Baum
Birth: Jun. 15, 1765
Death: Dec. 14, 1831

Mayor of Cincinnati. The son of German immigrants and a native of Hagerstown, Maryland, he moved west to Cincinnati in 1794 when Ohio was part of the Northwest Territory. He joined the military and fought with General Anthony Wayne at the Battle of Fallen Timbers on August 20, 1794 against the Blue Jacket's Indian Confederation near Toledo, Ohio. Baum then became a riverboat pioneer and later engaged in business pursuits. He started several successful companies including an iron works and is best remembered for attracting German immigrants to Cincinnati to work at various trades. The German-Americans eventually became a substantial part of the community. He accumulated vast wealth and became one of Cincinnati's earliest millionaires. Baum also became the president of the City Council in 1807 and became the Mayor in 1812. He had a home constructed on Pike Street which was later restored and is now open to the public as the Taft Museum. Originally buried in the 12th Street Presbyterian Burial Grounds, he was later removed to Spring Grove in 1853. (bio by: K Guy)
